A RESIDENT of Ludlow is asking for some dog walking support for their lovely dog Gertie, a 13-year-old terrier cross and the Cinnamon Trust wants to hear from anyone that can help.

The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity for the elderly and terminally ill and their pets.

It seeks to keep owner and pet together for as long as possible with the help of a national network of volunteers who assist when day to day care poses a problem.

Its aim is to relieve the owners of any worry concerning the welfare of their pets both during and after their own lifetime making the Trust unique amongst charities. Pets help physical and mental well-being.

All volunteers help in the ways that are most appropriate to them.

Teams take it in turn to visit housebound owners to take the dog for a walk, volunteers foster pets as one of their family when owners face a spell in hospital, they take pets to the vet, even clean out the budgie’s cage or cats litter trays.

To register or even have a quick chat about registering just call Sally or Tressa direct on 01736 758707 or email sallycollins@cinnamon.org.uk or tressaherriott@cinnamon.org.uk The volunteers can gain access to the volunteer page on our website or www.cinnamon.org.uk or by emailing us at volunteer@cinnamon.org.uk

Any help will be very gratefully accepted.
